The Big 3: CES, Orlando tech 2024, OTC leadership

What’s new at the Consumer Electronics Show?

The annual gathering of technology and innovation attracts a good number of Orlando’s tech community so it’s always fun to track Orlando-based social media accounts for insight on what’s happening in Las Vegas during the early part of the year. In fact, just browsing LinkedIn should give some insight into what’s happening in emerging technology at the annual trade show, which drew 115,000 people in 2023.

How does Orlando tech follow up on a strong 2023?

This is probably a “Big 3” candidate for every week but in the early part of the year, it will be interesting to see how Orlando’s tech community comes out of the gates. Already, I’m sure, companies and organizations are likely eyeing Synapse Summit in late February as a milestone event. So what comes before that popular Tampa gathering? We could find out a few things here this week.

Orlando Tech Community’s new leadership

A sincere welcome to new Orlando Tech Community President Dawn Haynes, better known around Orlando as the CEO and public face of Starter Studio. Personally, I was a big fan of how MetaCenter Global Week came together in October and I do believe it brings value to the community. That was an Orlando Tech Community initiative, among others. So I am intrigued by how Year 2 comes together and I imagine the work toward that starts now. I look forward to tracking progress there all year.

So, there you have it. Our first Big 3. Let me know what I’ve missed.
